Feel Good Friday: Pancakes & Sons


Visit The Girl Next Door Grows Up and learn about the different ways to participate in Feel Good Friday! I think it's such a great way to think about even the small ways to be thankful!

I haven't volunteered in my son's classroom at ALL this year. How I allowed that to happen is beyond me! So I'm going to school right away to help make pancakes to celebrate "If You Give A Pig A Pancake". They've been reading that series in his classroom and will end it with a pancake bash!
If I can get my camera from my daughter I'll take some pics and come back to post after we're done! My Doodle is so excited to have me come to school. Sad that I've wasted so much time sitting at home when I could've been hanging out with my son. Silly me. I'm hanging out there as much as his teacher will let me through the rest of the year!

My 10 yr old, Buddy, was given a pass from school on Wednesday. It was the first time in our towns history that the girls high school basketball team made it to the state playoffs! I'd say pretty much the entire town went. The bus company provided the buses and the school got the tickets, all for $13! Shoot, I gotta pay my friend for that! The papers came home with the kids on Monday and had to be paid by noon on Tuesday! I missed that part and was already on my way to work. So, my friend LK bought Buddy's ticket along with her own! What a life saver. The girls team didn't win, but my son will always remember that I let him skip school for a basketball game! Some things are more important than what's expected!

Mimi that is so cool! Plus there weren't any snowstorms for the game!!!!!!

In the 3rd grade the teachers stopped asking for help :-( Up until then I helped a lot. I miss it. I hope you have a blast!!

The basketball game thing reminds me of an episode of Boy Meets World (if you ever watched that show) where Cory stays up late to watch a no-hitter then falls asleep in school the next day. He thinks Mr. Pheony (not sure if that's the right spelling) is going to yell at him, but really he just says that sometimes the memories are worth it (or something like that)!

Anyhow, sounds like your line of thinking there (and I think it's a good one).

Visiting from Feel Good Friday!
